Depending on the material, design and power, the laser engraving process can take just a few seconds for small engravings or minutes for larger ones. For complex designs, the engraving time will of course be longer.
Laser beams work on virtually all materials, both organic and inorganic. The most popular ones are metal, plastic, wood, glass.
Laser markers are highly accurate. They are able to reproduce the customer's design identically. This is also important in the electronics, medical and industrial parts industry and in jewellery engraving.
Laser markers are suitable for batch marking because of their repeatability. The software retains the design and can mark and add identical markings to different or the same parts. This in turn results in faster turnaround times and aesthetically appealing, identical products.
The laser equipment can achieve a strong marking contrast that improves visibility and is permanent. Laser engraving is therefore robust in a wide range of environmental conditions and is not damaged by scratches, heat, cold, humidity or chemicals. This durability is not guaranteed by any other printing method. This is why laser-engraved labels are suitable for product identification and traceability.
Laser engraving requires no special chemicals and produces no toxic effluents. The process is clean and energy efficient.
